Singer Selena Gomez speaks candidly about her bipolar disorder in the new interview 


Triple-threat multiplatinum actress/singer/producer Selena Gomez recently sat for an interview for the September cover year of ELLE Magazine, titled “The Return of Selena Gomez,” during which she did not recoil from discussing her bipolar disorder.

“I felt a huge weight lifted off me once I acknowledged [I have bipolar],” she tells the mag. “I could take a deep breath and go, Okay, that explains such a lot .’”

These days, there seems to be barely any stigma about beginning as bipolar if you are a star, at least. Among the living, we who have bipolar are in splendid company: Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kanye West, David Harbour, Scott Stapp, Linda Hamilton and Richard Dreyfuss all have bipolar disorder.

In the world of pop, we now have four stars who have to begin as bipolar: Mariah Carey, Halsey, Bebe Rexha, and therefore the latest to return out Gomez. The former Disney star was executive producer of the controversial hit Netflix show “13 Reasons Why.” She divulged her bipolar status in April of the year 2020 during fellow Disney alum Miley Cyrus’ Instagram Live show “Bright Minded.”

“You know, I had gone to treatment a couple of times for depression and anxiety, and for other stuff that I had been battling,” Gomez told Cyrus some time past.

Gomez expounded on her psychological state in ELLE, saying: “There were all things that honestly should have taken me down. Every time I went through something, I used to be like, ‘What else? What else am I getting to need to deal with?”

Gomez has also been diagnosed with lupus, an autoimmune disorder, that she received a chemotherapy and kidney transplant.

She resisted self-harm, noting that she was tempted. “There could are a time once I used to be not strong enough and would have done something to harm myself,” Selena Gomez tells ELLE.

Taking an opportunity from social media and her mobile phone, Gomez went as far as giving her passwords to her assistant in the year 2017 to avoid logging on. As a result of avoiding the Internet, her anxiety went into remission.

Then Selena Gomez had a revelation that she was placed on this earth to assist people. Selena disclosed the private mantra she told herself a day to urge her through the pain: “You are getting to help people.”

And that is what she is indeed doing. “I am like, ‘I have got to do something more,” she says. After I am gone, I would like people to recollect me for my heart, this small little phone that had 150 million people thereon. I just put it down. That was such a relief on behalf of me, the singer explains.

Now, Selena Gomez is in a far better headspace than when she was first diagnosed as she reflects on the cards she is been dealt. “My lupus, my kidney transplant, chemotherapy, having a mental illness, browsing very public heartbreaks,” she tells ELLE. “These were all things that honestly should have taken me down.”

But they did not Instead, Selena Gomez stands tall. She is alive. And she is thriving.
